Fila has produced a short film using the brands ambassadors, Danny Dyer and Tamer Hassan aimed to attract cult fans of the actors and the brand as well as creating Talkability® for a wider audience. The gangster style film, to be unveiled early March, focuses on the new pre-distressed footwear style, Centre Court, and reveals the product within a clever twist in the final scenes.
Produced by Red Bee Media and directed by Marcus Jones, the short film was shot on location at East London haunt, The George Tavern, and surrounding gritty backstreets. This is the first time Fila has created a film to engage a purely online demographic.
Centre Court, the first of a collection of trainers which have been aged carefully to replicate a perfectly loved and lived in trainer from the 80s, are the focus for the plot in the film and Dyer and Hassans mission. The tagline, Fila- We break them in for you Get the Look Without the Effort summarises the carefully scuffed and discoloured aesthetic of each trainer.
The viral film will also be entered into a variety of industry short film festivals. The film supports a key Vintage style within their most comprehensive collection to date and is a testament to Filas firm grasp on everything retro.
